Migration of the Salome family to the New World and Oceana
Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island
, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Salome, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early: Salomon Salomon, who came to Georgia in 1733; Abraham Salomon arrived in Philadelphia in 1739; as did Johann Ernst Salomon in 1744 and Johan Salomon in 1750. Eberhart Sallomon arrived in Philadelphia in 1753..
